New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson and his mom Lisa have been in the headlines nonstop over the past few weeks.
It all started when Zach’s ex-girlfriend, Abbey Gile, was accused of being a “homie hopper” for dating his one-time roommate and best friend. She responded by claiming that, in fact, Zach was the real “homie hopper” for sleeping with one of his mom’s best friends.
A media firestorm soon erupted, for obvious reasons.
NFL Pro Bowlers weighed in the matter. Detailed investigations occurred into which friend it was. Lisa introduced her best friend to the world. Zach bluntly addressed the controversy at Jets training camp. It was a whole big thing.
Understandably, as a result of everything that has transpired, a lot of attention has started to be devoted to Lisa and her friend group. Which is precisely why her 50th ‘sexy’ birthday party and the attendance of her friends went viral this past week.
The videos largely speak for themselves:

As do the photos:
Needless to say, a fun time was had by all. Nobody walked away from the proceedings disappointed.
Zach clearly wants to move on from all this. He worked on his body tremendously in the offseason. He has studied. He has tried to earn the trust of his teammates.
He has a new girl.
He’s ready to end this drama once and for all — preferably before the start of the 2022-23 NFL season.
And it seem like his ex-best friend and his ex-girlfriend are pretty tired of all the ridicule as well.

But clearly the rest of the football-watching world is still having too much fun with this story.
When will everyone finally move on?
Time will tell.
